Roseview Windows, the specialist uPVC vertical sliding sash window fabricator, has been nominated for a G-Award for their commitment to innovation and product development. Roseview’s newly launched high performance sash window, the Ultimate Rose, is up for New Product of the Year, an all-new category for the long established event.
According to the event organisers this category recognises an “outstanding new product that will make major inroads to improving overall building performance, as well as making significant contributions to the company balance sheet.”
Roseview is the only specialist sash window fabricator to receive a nomination this year and they will be joining companies such as REHAU, Veka, Mila, Pilkington and Saint Gobain, all of whom are finalists for the same category having launched new products in the last 12 months. Independently owned Roseview will clearly be facing some stiff competition, but nevertheless managing director Willie Kerr is looking forward to the night.
Willie commented: “2013 has been a year of real innovation – you only had to walk around the FIT Show to see wealth of stunning new products on show – so it’s a real honour to be nominated for the New Product of the Year. We’re up against some big multi-national companies with brilliant products so if we win it will be a massive achievement.”
The Ultimate Rose is a mechanically jointed uPVC sash window designed specifically for the heritage and conservation sector. It replicates the fine details of a timber box sash window and includes a flush run-through horn, deep bottom rail and authentic putty lines. The window has been accepted in numerous conservation sectors, a factor that no doubt impressed the judges and resulted in Roseview’s nomination.
